Arts Education Helps Train Tomorrow’s Workforce: A strong arts education helps prep kids for the future
At a recent ArtsFund luncheon, Keynote Steven J. Tepper highlighted the science and statistics behind the role of artistic minds in shaping our future. Dr. Tepper shared data showing that Nobel Prize winners are four times more likely to be musicians, 17 times more likely to be visual artists, and 22 times more likely to be performers than scientists who did not win the Nobel Prize. Moreover, patent holders are 30% more likely to have studied the arts as children. And 93% of STEM honors graduates have some musical training compared to 34% of American adults.
